Richard Gere Makes Nearly $1 Million By Selling Guitars!

richard gere sells guitar collection

Good to see he's making some money, even though we haven't seen him in too many movies lately!

Yesterday, Richard Gere sold 110 lots from his personal collection of guitars and amps for a grand total of nearly $1 million!

Here's what the actor/former guitar collector had to say about it:

"Without ever thinking I was putting a collection together, there seems to be one. I just bought what I liked, what sounded good — what played well."

As far as the proceeds are concerned, Richard has said that he'll use all the auction money to buy more guitars support global humanitarian causes.

How nice and selfless of Richard! We are impressed!

Do U collect anything? If so, how much money do U think your collection is worth???

    Good for him for aging gracefully! It's pleasantly surprising to see a man with gray hair in the age of hair dye.

    he is still lookin' good. He has gentle and warm eyes.

    Richard Gere was so HOT in American Gigolo and An Officer and a Gentlemen. I like his silver hair now.
